Art, art and more art..


It was my birthday last week and my family, knowing how much I love art, put in a substantial amount for me to spend at the Art Upmarket held in Winthrop Hall at UWA on Saturday. The perfect venue for such an occasion as the university is an architectural piece of art itself. As you can see below even though WA is Covid free there was a queue, only so many people admitted into the hall at one time. Oh my gosh there was so much fabulous art.. so much so that my Libra trait of indecision kicked in and I came away with nothing.. much to Aimee's annoyance I blame any indecisive moment on my star sign 😉    

I wasn't sure if the artists participating would appreciate me taking pics which gave me time to absorb the talent. Aimee did however come away with a gorgeous new piece of art for her wall, in the meantime I will enjoy the anticipation of a future fabulous purchase. The shot below I couldn't resist, two dogs of similar sausage shape but completely different in size and girth :) It's quite something to hear a Basset hound bark, so deep! Hope you had/are still having a good weekend, take care and stay safe..


  1. This weekend is our annual town Artists Studio Tour, when artists open their studios and homes, and lots of wonderful art changes hands. But this year is different, it's all on line.
    So I was very pleased to see your photos of real people going in to see the art for sale, and making purchases in person. We are not at that stage yet.
    Nobody wearing masks in your photo! I'm surprised.

  2. Dearest Grace,
    Happy belated Birthday!
    That Cathedral like Winthrop Hall is quite something. Does that pipe organ ever get played?
    Cute photo of the male black & tan Dachshund, like my Mauzie girl.

  3. Belated best wishes, Grace. I am a Libra too. Such fun for your special day!

  4. I would have been overwhelmed too. Something will catch your eye at a later date, Grace.

  5. ...there can never to be much art for me, but there were too many people for me!

  6. Happy belated Birthday. Looks like you had a good day despite turning down all the art. Fun dog photo.

  7. Belated Happy Birthday. I love the dogs checking each other out. :)

  8. There is a very impressive set of organ pipes.

  9. So many enjoyable enjoyable Little gems here. I'm jealous seeing people have fun without masks. Oh well hopefully our election will bring us back to the 21st century very soon. Yes those bassetts Bay don't they! Happy birthday sweetheart I adore you

  10. I bet one could see all sort of art, surprise on how low mask wearers are

  11. Belated Birthday Greetings.
    Nice pics. Stay Safe.

  12. I thought it was Pisceans like me who were indecisive lol, welcome to the club. On the art, that would be my ideal birthday outing too. Hope you get to go back and get something.

  13. Well, Grace, the perfect excuse for more visits, right? Clever 🤣

  14. That must have been a fun weekend.

  15. Great to see people watching art together, I miss it so...

  16. What a wonderful post. I hope you had a lovely birthday shared with loved ones. I relate to your indecisiveness, my birthday is Oct 13 and I struggle to make up my mind in certain areas.

  17. Art? I only noticed that fine pipe organ!
    It'd be nice to hear an organ recital.

    I'm more into music than art. Especially music from a pipe organ.

  18. A day enjoying art is a day well spent! Lucky you! I love the dog shot. My dad had a Basset Hound once so yes, that is quite a bark.

  19. Happy belated birthday Grace, I had the date written down but of course I didn't look!
    Love the cute photo of the dogs :)

  20. A wonderful setting for art. And two cute pups!

  21. Happy Birthday Grace. Looks like a wonderful way to spend your day as well as to be indecisive about art purchases.

  22. Happy Birthday. Nice gift from the family.

  23. Love all the art and the feeling of being there, I've been to some art spots myself in Alabama which I'll share later! Those pups are adorable too.

  24. Belated Happy Birthday Wishes.

    All the best Jan

  25. Don't delay too long on that art. My parents gave me money to buy a clock as a wedding present. I took 30 years! It was so long I had to adjust the amount for inflation. But I must admit I enjoyed looking at lots of clocks over those years.

    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day i heard about the DR. EMU and I emailed him and he replied to me so kindly and helped me get back my lovely relationship that was already gone for two months.
